It's a tough one alright - quite possibly a first. IIRC Liverpool just unofficially fielded a weak team (who happened to be U21). I might be wrong, but this one appears to be an entirely new, officially sanctioned, replacement fixture.

If so, I reckon BF have done the right thing in re-starting from scratch.

Hard to find info but apparently the Spanish Federation has consulted whether in official terms the match will count for the players as an absolute international or Under-21 and FIFA confirmed late in the afternoon on Monday that the match is absolute for all purposes, so looks like there will be at least 16 debutants for the Spanish national team.

The clubs are apparently angry because this would mean they have to pay out special clauses and bonuses to those debuting for the senior team, when they don't really deserve those call-ups.

Meanwhile Betfair closed the market around 13:00 on Monday, looks like before the FIFA confirmation. So if the above is correct, the match shouldn't be called Spain U21 v Lithuania.

I accepted the decision right away and asked them to open a new market at least, I had a feeling the market might not stand and didn't catch the initial price correction but was active afterwards when I saw a lively market, I would just like to know for the future whether this was another Betfair cock-up of sorts or whether it's standard procedure.

Either a bot's running amok on the Venezuela-Uruguay match or someone's watching the wrong match. :lol:

I can see why they keep suspending now. Watching Chile v Bolivia, BLV's crap and they suspend every time the video freezes. I'd rather they just left the markets unmanaged. Someone with fast pics took my money in the Venezuela/Paraguay match and 6-8 ticks beyond only to find the goal was VARred. :lol:

It's a nightmare ... every night in the early hours UK there's the same bot on everything that's 0-0 at HT pushes all the under/overs to ridiculous levels ... and then tonight the California Utd Strikers v San Diego 1904 FC was suspended for no reason and left suspended ... so you're sat there watching goals go in and no way of trading or consolidating

Grrr

Malaysia playing really well before getting their equalizer through a penalty, well deserved.
